Deciding Where You Will Go

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go…”
―    Dr. Seuss,    Oh, the Places You’ll Go!

Shoes

My feet hurt – they ache and burn

As I force them into fashionable shapes.

I can’t hop to attention,

I can’t run if I’m chased.

There are no kicks to punctuate my screams.

I blame my feet.

They will not conform to the newest obsession

They are too fat, to flat just a rebellious gathering of toes.

My feet hurt –

They resist being stretched, stuffed and

Crammed into the wrong pair of shoes.

I clumsily stumble unable to balance

In a fashion multimedia show. 

Brilliant creations drafted by artists

Who personally hate my feet.

Aching complaints sedate and control,

Inching forward on tippy toe

Each stride hobbles my sense.

Paying top dollar to vogue’s hefty toll.

And yet my feet hurt!Image

Anna Quindlen

“We waste our lives apologizing for our maturity instead of celebrating the power that comes with age.” by Lynne Spreen, blogger and agless guru for women over forty.

Reblogging: From Lynne Spreen’s ‘Any Shiny Thing: Getting Old Is Fantastic!

“Anna Quindlen is 59 years old, and she thinks the same way I do, so today, I’m going to borrow from her new book to make my own points about age: It’s odd when I think of the arc of my life, from child to young woman to aging adult. First I was who I […]”

at this age)…we’re unlearning so many lessons, about how we should live, be, work, feel. We hold our fingers up to the prevailing winds of custom and behavior and think, nope, that’s an ill wind. It’s not that we question authority, it’s that we question who gets to be an authority in the first place….For me, one of the greatest glories of growing older is the willingness to ask why and, getting no good answer, deciding to follow my own inclinations and desires. Asking why is the way to wisdom. Why are we supposed to want possessions we don’t need and work that seems besides the point and tight shoes and a fake tan? Why are we supposed to think new is better than old, youth and vigor better than long life and experience? Why are we supposed to turn our backs on those who have preceded us and to snipe at those who come after?”

James Baldwin

Unless a writer is extremely old when he dies, in which case he has probably become a neglected institution, his death must always be seen as untimely. This is because a real writer is always shifting and changing and searching. The world has many labels for him, of which the most treacherous is the label of Success.- James Baldwin

“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.”

Eleanor Roosevelt

“One’s philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the choices one makes. In the long run, we shape our lives and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And, the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.”
~ Eleanor Roosevelt ~
